There was a procedure that was left out of the meet information for some reason this year: scratches for finals. It was pointed out that there is in fact a penalty for not scratching from finals if they are qualified.
Final Scratches: If you are qualified and do not want to swim in the Final, you may “scratch” from the event by following this procedure:
- You must fill out and sign the scratch form within 30 minutes of the announcement of qualifiers for finals is announced.
- You may declare intent to “scratch”. You must fill out and sign the scratch form within 30 minutes of the announcement of announcement of qualifiers, marking the appropriate space for “intent”. If you declare an “intent to scratch” and do not wish to swim finals, you must confirm your scratch on the scratch form within 30 minutes after the conclusion of your last preliminary event of the day or your will be automatically seeded into the event.
- If an athlete fails to properly scratch from an event and does not appear for the “Final” event, they shall be barred from further competition of the remainder of the meet.
